Fawk you to the excruciatingly miserable heat! Hey Heat, you suck! I’m melting and frizzing up over here..NOT COOL! Thank God I get to take my family to a baseball heat stroke  game tonight. It shouldbe ever so pleasant melting out under the lights.

Fawk you to being chunky! This goes hand in hand with the heat, chunky in the heat = A very unhappy Mommy! Sweaty kids hanging on a already glistening Mommy , not my idea of family fun time.

Fawk you to me for not doing the exercise I was supposed to do this week.If I had, maybe I wouldn’t be so dang hot right now. But in my defense, I am pretty sure I would have had a heat stroke and died had I tried to do Turbo Jam in this weather. Then what would have become of my poor sweaty children? They would have been left to their own devices …bathing in the pool as my carcas rotted on the living room floor until my husband made it back in town on Friday. So ,really, its not my fault at all!

Fawk you to the 133 million under cover cops that are patroling the highways this weekend.I’ve got people to see and places to go, you are only slowing me down and making things a wee bit more dangerous when I have to drive constantly watching my rear view mirror.

Fawk you to stupid people ( damn heat induced grouchy attitude) ! But let me be honest, I have no tolerance for stupid people especially when I am in line at Walmart trying to buy some hot dogs and wine for tomorrows lunchtime bbq! Don’t jugdge me…I just realized how incredibly redneck that sentence made me sound. I actually made the remark about how redneck I felt buying hotdogs and wine at WALMART while in line there. The brain trust behind the register, obviously, did not see the humor in it. So, FAWK her too!

Monday Minute

What’s your real name?
Debi

Have you ever fabricated a story or anything on your blog?  
No, the stories are real, the feelings are real, my chaos is real. The whole purpose of my blog is so that I can be real and other women will know that they are not the only ones who are not perfect:) Embrace your insanity!

When in the car do you listen to the radio/CDs/iPod/etc?
Usually the radio if I am in the car by myself. I turn it all the way up and sing at the top of my lungs, its the only time I can listen to current music that is actually NEW! Otherwise, I am restricted to CDs, or whatever I have on the Ipod  but most likely I’m jamming to nursery rhymes, Dora, the Wiggles, yo Gabba Gabba, Laurie Berkner and Dan Zanes!

Describe the ‘sexiest’ item of clothing that you own
hmmmm…I have lots of sexxxy clothing unfortunately none of it fits right now! My favorite sexy piece of clothing is …

 But if the big guy cooperates,  soon this will be the sexiest piece of clothing that I will own…

Would you be willing to breastfeed your friend’s three year old child?
No way! Breastfeeding after the first 6 months to a year ( at the max) is a big NO WAY for me.Unless there were extraneous circumstances like..it was the only way the kid could survive and even then..it would still be difficult for me!

Getting to know YOU

1. If you had to choose a country to live in besides USA (or the country you live in), which would it be?
I would have to say  Spain, Italy, or Greece. I need sun, great food,  and sexxxy men!
2. Which would be worse, wearing flip flops in the snow or wearing gloves in the summer?
Worse would be wearing gloves in the summer. I can’t stand to be uncomfortably hot , extra clothing is not an option in the heat.

3. Fried or Bake and why?
Bake, I can’t stand the taste and feel of grease in my fingers, on my lips, in my mouth or in my stomach!Ewww!
4. If you were an entertainment reporter, which celeb would you love to interview and why?
Alexander Skarsgard, really just because he is hotter than any other man on the planet, also maybe Angelina Jolie because I think she would be interesting to have a sit down with.
5. What was your favorite book as a preteen/teenager?
The Catcher in the Rye, I was quiet and  I thought Holden was awesome. I read mostly adult books that were passed down from my aunt who was a few years older. I remember reading the Exorcist and scaring the shit out of myself!
6. List your top 3 guilty pleasure television shows.
The Real Housewives of NY & New Jersey, Jersylicious, and Jersey Couture ( that should all count as one as they are all from Jersey), Vampire Diaries, & True Blood!
7. What bumper sticker slogan best describes you/your attitude/your life?

8. If you were to join a circus – what performer would you be?

I would be the ring leader, because I like making a spectacle of myself and being in charge of everything!

Blog Bash

First, to introduce myself, I am known as Truthful Mommy ( because I am painfully honest) but I also answer to Mommy(kids), Babe(husband), Honey(Mom), Sugar(Grandma), Sexy, (Eric from True Blood…in my dreams) and occasionally Debi. I am a 37 year old Mommy to two amazing little girls, Bella and Gabi, who are simultaneously my heaven and occasional sources of hell on earth. I am married to my college sweetheart and we just celebrated our 11th anniversary.
Random facts, I am equally addicted to  my children, my husband, my Iphone, my computer,and my camera…not necessarily in that order! If I could do anything in the world, I’d have the exact same life but my husband would not  have to live in another state for work (maybe he could co stay home with me:), money would not be an ever present thought, and I could write for a living while traveling the world with my husband and girls; experiencing the languages, cultures,religions, and beauty of the world.
I have finally realized what I want to do with my life, or rather just decided to have the guts to pursue it. It only took 37 years! I always knew that I wanted to be a Mommy ( I come from a family of 6 brothers and sisters) but the rest I’ve thought I knew but its changed over the years. I think, my entire life has brought me to this point and prepped me to embark on this journey to pursue my dreams with passion, enthusiasm and a no failure attitude and  to exhaust all avenues of potential afforded to me. It’s go big or go home! I’m not  a quitter, so I’m making my declaration of reaching for the stars!

1.) Why do you blog? 

I blog because I am a writer and my dream is to either have a column, a book, or both and in the end.. My dream is to follow in the footsteps of Dooce, Motherhood Uncensored, Finslippy,  and the Pioneer Woman!

2.) What do you blog about? 
I blog about what I know; my life, Motherhood, as I know it, being a wife and a woman. I try to do it all with honesty and openness because there is nothing I hate more than women making other women feel shitty about not being perfect. If I can make 1 woman feel like she is not alone in the trenches of Motherhood, and if I can do that through letting her laugh at me or see my flaws, I feel like I have exceeded my hopes!
3.) What do you find to be the biggest reward you get from blogging?
The biggest reward I have gotten from blogging is a surprising one. As I said, I started this blog as a means to an end ; a way to chronicle my girls as they grow up and the emotions, feelings, and enormity of all that Motherhood and this time of my life encompasses but also as a way to hone my skill in writing. In addition to these things,the reward I have actually gotten that means the most is the community of readers that I have had the pleasure of meeting. I thought I’d be helping other women through their difficult days but, through my honesty in my posts, I have gained a community of support and friendship that helps me get through the difficult days! Thanks Ladies ( and a couple brave gentlemen)!
4.) How long have you been blogging? 
I started my blog in May of 2009 at the urging of a friend of mine who is  a professional writer. She told me that it would be a great way to build my writing portfolio and fine tune my skills. Then life happened, we moved, and I didn’t get back to it full time until we moved again in February of 2010. So I guess I have been blogging full time for about 6 months but had my site up and running for 6 months previous to that.
5.) Let’s hear the story behind your blog title! 🙂 
The Story behind my blog title “The TRUTH about Motherhood” is that I want to give it to women straight. I am a no holds  barred, straight shooting Mommy who doesn’t sugar coat the bad days, but I also don’t hold back on the good ones. I read every book I could get my hands on before I actually had my first baby, but in the end nothing prepared me for the reality of pregnancy, labor, delivery, and Motherhood in all of its glory.  I want to change that. I want women  to have a place where they can come and read my truth ( which is likely very similar to theirs) not the truth according to Bree Van de Kamp! 

Happy Mothering!

1. Can you burp the ABC’s?
Yeah, no way! That is pretty gross, unless you are under the age of 5.


2. So lets just say you have a 9+ hour drive ahead of you would you consider wearing Depends so you didn’t have to stop multiple times?

NO, I would never intentionally urinate or defecate on myself and sit in it ..under no circumstances. Well, maybe if I was sitting in a closet while Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers was roaming the room looking for me, but other than that..NO WAY!

3. Would you rather…run your tongue down five feet of a NYC street or press your tongue into a strangers nostril?
OK, well these are both equally nauseating but honestly…you’d be more likely if catching something licking someone’s nostril of course you’d probably need a tetanus after running your tongue down 5 feet on NYC street. OF course  if you licked where someone freshly spat or a bum urinated not wearing his Depends, yeah, I say shoot me now! I’m not doing either! TOO NASTY!!!! I’d rather be shot than ingest the cooties!

4. If you had an envelope that contained the date you would die would you open it?
Yes, and then I would do every single thing I ever wanted to do knowing I had a predetermined expiration date that I was actually privy too. I could use the kick start to my get up and go. It’s taken me 37 years to finally realize what I want out of my life, and I think knowing an end date would put it into more perspective. Its not the end, its just the end of one journey and the beginning of another.

5. Which one song describes your sex life best?
Between the Sheets, The Isley Brothers

Monday Minute

Who of all your blog friends would you like to meet and/or who have you met?  
I think I would like to meet Ian, Jana, Nikki, Sofia, the Purseblogger, Naomi, Peryl, Heather,Kristen, and several others. I would love to meet a lot of my blog friends, they all seem like such genuine, fun people..not like the crazies you meet in the real world:) Just kidding, my 3 real friends are awesome!!!! LOL

What kind of vehicle(s) do you drive?




A Dodge Durango and when I am really nice I get to drive the 300.

What kind of cell phone do you have?
IPHone…Oh, how I love thee!


What’s the most annoying thing you wish bloggers would stop doing?

A really annoying thing…I don’t mind when people curse because damn it to hell I do it regular. But I stumbled onto a blog that was nothing but that. It must have been their niche because it was like they were in some sort of crazy bet to see how many curse words they could fit into one post, to make matters worse, the post was of no real value. So I read all that cursing and I learned absolutely nothing:) Well, I did lose 5 minutes of my life that I’ll never get back..so that’s something. But I could have been equally as entertained if I had spent the 5 minutes with a bunch of drunken sailors:)

What’s the one thing that you still have on your bucket list to do before the year is out?
I want to be published…maybe a column would be nice:) Oh yeah, and I wouldn’t sneeze at losing that 30 pounds either!

I just wanted to take a moment to tell all of you lovely readers that I have tons of guests at my house this week so I am a little backed up on my replies to comments. I promise to catch up tomorrow ( my one free day without visitors). It’s 1:19 am and I am bushed! I am not going to post tonight for fear that in my deliriously sleepy state of mind, I may string together some incoherent craziness..you know like something that you might hear come out of the mouth of a politician or something!  I just wanted to let you all know that I have been checking my comments via my phone and I really appreciate all the feedback. I am truly flattered that you have taken the time out of your day to read and comment on my blog. It means more than you can imagine. All time is precious, but when a Mommy uses her very vital and fleeting free time to read and comment…that is something very dear to me.Happy Mothering! See you tomorrow!
